To achieve the ability to identify textured image regions and estimate their parameters a joint segmentation-estimation algorithm that combines the 2-D Wold decomposition based texture model with a Markovian labeling process is derived.

Ordering and indexing of images require a definition of a distance measure between images. Using the framework of the Kullback distance between probability distributions, a new distance measure between textures is derived.
